Starting August 10th, Westport anglers can keep up to two Chinook

Starting August 10th, anglers in Westport can keep up to two Chinook as part of their two-salmon daily limit.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife says that sufficient quota remains for Chinook in Marine Area 2 to allow retention of more than one Chinook salmon in the daily limit.

This change begins on Saturday and the Chinook minimum size is 24″.

The coho minimum size is 16″, and other salmon do not have a minimum size. 

The WDFW says the daily limit of two salmon will remain, and anglers must release wild coho.

They also state that the Grays Harbor control zone and Marine Area 2-2 west of buoy 13 are closed to salmon angling beginning August 12.

Anglers are reminded to always check for emergency rule changes prior to fishing.

Rule changes can be found on the website at or by calling the fishing hotline at 360-902-2500.
